ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD -HELP!!!!!
The administrator password in Windows XP is the password used to access the "Administrator" account.
This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most
people don't know it exists. Usually that's okay because you won't need
to use your computer under this account very often.
There are a few times when you will need this password! When you're accessing the Windows XP Recovery Console
or you're trying to boot into Windows XP Safe Mode
, you'll need this password before you can continue.
Follow the steps below to quickly find the administrator password on your computer!
Retrieving the Administrator password may take a few minutes up to hours depending on the situation
Try leaving the password blank. More often than not, the Administrator password doesn't exist at all! Just press Enter without typing anything when asked for it.
Enter the password to your account. Often
times, depending on how Windows XP was setup on your computer, the
primary user account will also be the administrator user account.
Try to remember your administrator password.
If you installed Windows XP on your computer yourself, you probably set
the administrator password during the Windows XP installation process.
If that's true, you might be able to make really good guesses at what
the password might be.
- Have another user enter his or her password. If there
are other users that have accounts on your Windows XP computer, one of
them may be setup with administrator access.
Recover the administrator password using a password recovery tool.
Password recovery tools are software programs that work by making
super-fast guess after super-fast guess until the password is
Note: Some password recovery tools is the list I linked to above
also have the ability to transform regular user passwords into
administrator passwords. This could be valuable if you know your
account's password but it's not an administrator account.
Perform a clean installation of Windows XP.
This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely
remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch.
If you're just curious about your administrator password, I wouldn't
suggest this extreme solution. However, if you're needing the
administrator password to access diagnostic tools and this is your last
effort to save your PC, performing a clean install will work. Keep in
mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of
your data must be backed up and then later restored.

If you restore the laptop to the Out of the box condition you will lose all your data.
You can remove or change the Window's User or
administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with
Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD.
Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up
the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions.
There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD
which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal
Click on one of these links to
download HIREN'S BOOTCD :-
After fixing your admin password then create a new one and do not lend your laptop to your room mates.

My 380UX's screen show a
I think it would be better to isolate the problem if its software or hardware. Most likely the lines on the screen are cause either by faulty LCD, loosed cable from the LCD to Video Card or Bad Video Card. Try loading to BIOS and see if its having lines inside it, If yes means its already hardware problem. There is a Loosed, Bad connection or Faulty hardware inside the machine.
Hope it helps.

On start up i see
This sounds like a hardware problem. The most common is a hard drive issue. On startup in the right hand corner you will see two options, choose press F12. this will bring you to a menu. search for run diagnostics test. select that option and it should tell you what the problem is. Then go from there and research the problem further. There is many different thing that could be wrong. but this is the first step in the right direction.
Hope this helps.
